The Martingale Foundation supports a new generation of postgraduates to become STEM leaders

Through fully-funded scholarships and access to a community of pioneering leaders, we enable students to pursue master’s and PhDs in STEM subjects at some of the leading research universities in the UK.

Our mission

We believe that family income should not be a barrier to the pursuit of excellence.

Postgraduate degrees are increasingly associated with academic and career advancement. However, student loans often fall short of tuition fees, never mind the cost of living. This puts postgraduate study out of reach for many who cannot fund their studies through financial support from their family.

A Martingale Scholar receives:

A fully-funded scholarship to pursue a master’s degree at one of our partner universities

All tuition fees and research expenses covered, including a tax-free stipend for living costs

Tailored support to apply for a Martingale PhD Scholarship

Access to the Martingale Development Programme, including leadership training and access to top academic and industry professionals

Membership of a pioneering community of future STEM leaders.

The Martingale Postgraduate Scholarship is our flagship programme that supports passionate and talented students facing financial barriers to pursue master’s and PhDs and excel in them.
